"HARLASTON is a village, township, and chapelry, pleasantly seated on an eminence, on the south bank of the Mease, 4 miles N. of Tamworth, and 2½ miles W. of Clifton Campville. It has 218 inhabitants, and 1400 acres of land. The Rev. Thos. Levett, of Packington, and Mr. John Nevill, of Wigginton, are joint lords of the manor; but most of the soil belongs to several other proprietors, one of whom is Sir Francis Burdett, and another the Dowager Countess Chetwynd. The chapel is an ancient building, with a low wooden spire. The nave was rebuilt and new-pewed about six years ago. The curacy is annexed to the mother church."
